TAG THEY'RE IT: SHAZAM'S BIGGEST MOVERS

Three songs from Jay-Z’s first album in four years, 4:44 (Roc Nation), have shot up the Shazam USA Top 100 chart, making them the week’s biggest movers.

Hova must find some satisfaction knowing so many phones are pointed at speakers streaming Tidal—it’s supposed to be about music discovery, right?

Well, besides discovering “Bam,” “The Story of O.J.” and the title track, all of which were up more than 130 slots, thumbs were also tagging the new singles from reggaeton singer J Balvin and Willy Williams (Scorpio/Universal Latin) and Republic’s Metro Boomin’ f/Offset and Drake.

Gnash’s viral hit from last fall, “I Hate U, I Love U,” is the biggest mover in the U.K. ahead of Sam Smith’s cover of the Whitney Houston hit “How Will I Know” and Sleeping at Last’s cover of George Michael’s “Faith.”
